I installed the Git binaries from your installer primarily for Gitk.
But when running gitk (in the directory of a Git checkout) I get the error stack trace mentioned in and Homebrew/homebrew-core#115.

The fix (mentioned in both of these places) is easy: Replace all occurrenced of the word lime by "#99FF00" (including the double-quotes).

I would find it useful if the Git binaries contained this fix.
